With respect to whether or not Al Qaeda has fighters in Iraq Nancy Pelosi has said, "the 9/11 Commission dismissed that notion a long time ago and I feel sad that the president is resorting to it again." How informed is that?: http://www.thenews.com.pk/update_detail.asp?id=12721
You remember Democrat John Edwards, don't you? Mr. Hot-Shot trial lawyer who is suddenly eager to be our president? Well, Edwards is part of the joint unions and Democrat war against Wal-Mart. He says that Wal-Mart just doesn't pay its workers enough. So here we have John Edwards doing a book signing in Manchester, New Hampshire. He's signing books at the Barnes & Noble book store. As luck would have it there's a Wal-Mart right there! The local newspaper, the Union Leader, decided to see what sort of wages these two stores are paying. The Wal-Mart, it seems, starts all workers at $7.50 an hour. The Barnes & Noble? Their starting salary is $7.00 an hour. - Neal Boortz
COMMENT ON WORKERS WAGES: Don't ever forget that it is the workers and unions who set wage rates, NOT employers. Don't believe it? Well let's look at a business that has to hire employees. They advertise for employees to fill their vacant positions and some people come in for interviews. Offers are made to several of those interviewed. All refuse the offers. What now? The company will have to keep increasing their wage and benefit package until they can hire the people they need. Do you see what is going on here? It is the prospective employees that are deciding what is and is not an acceptable wage, NOT the employer. The Liberal Democrats are saying that Wal Mart doesn't pay their employees enough, BUT, their employees have already decided that IT IS ENOUGH when they accepted the jobs Wal Mart offered to them. This is nothing more than the Democrats paying off the unions for their campaign support.
